Analysis: The 14 coins influencers rate highest going into the week

After the weekend, things can chop and change in the cryptocurrency market. In this, our sentiment analyst Remy Stephens looks at the tokens most influential going into the new week.

Written by Remy Stephens Published on

If I hear one more thing about Bitcoin’s final decision coming soon, I’m going to scream.

That said, if you’ve been anywhere near crypto social media in the last week, it’s likely all you’ve heard. It seems like most agree a major $BTC move is coming, and I’ve certainly seen it come up frequently among the 150+ influencers and traders I follow for my analysis.

I’ve been around charts enough at this point to know that’s probably true, so let’s look at what the market charts can tell us.

Disclaimer: I wrote this on Sunday night after close, so if something crazy happened between then and publication ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. 

Sentiment for both $BTC and Alts is very high right now, which is concerning to me because of what we saw earlier in September.

Sentiment, for $BTC in particular, only reached this level twice last month. In each case, a major dump followed within 36 hours. Things could certainly move higher, but if this trend continues recent history suggests we’re headed for a reset and that could mean a major selloff as some have suggested.

So, the top Alts chart comes with that caveat. Should $BTC nosedive, it’s unlikely many alts will keep their bullish trends. That said, should the opposite be true, we could see some major moves as many Alts have been in accumulation for quite a long time.

The Top Alts

These coins/tokens had the highest power rating in my analysis this week. The power rating is a weighted calculation taking into account sentiment, volume and the number of unique users who mentioned a coin. Generally, I eliminate any coins mentioned by less than 3 individual people as I don’t feel it would be representative of a trend.

Methodology

Each week, I scrape the Twitter accounts of some of the crypto world’s favorite influencers, traders and TA folk. I run a sentiment analysis to see which coins they are mentioning positively, neutrally and which they are mentioning in a negative light.

I also take in data on unique influencers, retweets, favorites, volume and strength of feeling in sentiment.

I calculate power by through a weighted formula that takes into consideration volume, number of unique influencers and sentiment. The higher the score, the better, the lower the worse.

This isn’t financial advice, just my own way of trying to make sense of what’s out there. And as with most things, the more data I collect, hopefully, the more interesting it’ll be. This is a work in progress. Please leave suggestions on how to make it better. I imagine if I keep up with it, I’ll be able to expand a bunch of the analysis, but I wanted to start somewhere.
